Learn how to set and print your own gift cards using a vintage letterpress machine with local artist and printer Lou Davis.
On this fun workshop you will revive a traditional skill by learning how to set metal or wooden type to create a set of bespoke cards featuring a personal message.
Bring along a short quote you love, joke or a greeting card message to print on to heavyweight cardstock using one of our Adana tabletop printing presses. Learn to set type into a frame (called a chase), and print your message on the press to produce a set of bespoke cards ready to take home.
The price includes access to all the equipment you will need, all materials plus welcome refreshments.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please inform us of any skin or food allergies when booking.
Print your own gift cards using a vintage letterpress: 10 February 2021 6pm-9pm
The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.
The price includes welcome refreshments, and on our full day workshops we include a buffet style lunch. And of course you take home all the unique products you create.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group, and most can be brought to you too. Please email us for more information.
